What's the difference compared to other OpenStreetMap services?

Designing any basemap requires tradeoffs between detail, size and visibility of features at different zoom levels. The unique design goals of Protomaps are:

  • - A library of simple map styles to use as a base, targeting all popular map renderers.
  • - Frequent updates from the main OSM database.
  • - Localization by including all multilingual names.

How do I report a problem with the map?

Help finding problems on the map is greatly appreciated! If you notice something that exists in OSM but is not rendered correctly, contact [email protected]

How is Protomaps being developed?

Protomaps is a 100% independent project with significant open source components. You can find me on twitter at @bdon.
